You'll wish that summer
could always
be here!

Do ordinary things with extraordinary love.

Tuesday Tales

A weekly peek at what we're reading.
Post your peek in the comments and share your favorite books!

Anne is reading
The Goodnight Book edited by Alice Wong and Lena Tabori

The moon like a flower
In heaven's high bower
With silent delight,
Sits and smiles on the night.

-- William Blake

Holly is reading
Lindsey by Chryssa Atkinson

"Kids, your Uncle Bernie is coming to live with us."

Ethan let out a scream, tipped his chair over backward, and started rolling around on the floor, howling, "Nooooooooooo!"

Mom put her head in her hands and began to hum a tuneless song.  Dad got up, stepped over Ethan, and went to the kitchen to pour himself a cup of coffee.

Lily is reading
The Story of Holly and Ivy by Rumer Godden

If Ivy had stopped to think she would have known she could not get her doll.  How could she when the shop was locked and the window was in between?  Besides, Holly was not Ivy's doll and had not even been sold.  A wise person would have known this, but sometimes it is better to feel a prickle than to be wise.
